The Orange Wave
Orange -Red and Orange

"People that hate cats will come back as mice in their next life."    -Faith Resnick

Suzanne Caygill observed two of the special petite types, namely, The Gamine and the Sprite, who usually include deep red-orange in their wardrobe.

The Gamine has a square chin, angles in the jaw and high brows. She is often freckled and tawny haired, or sometimes black haired with a milk-white skin. She is often seen in the theatre or as a dancer.

The Sprite is also of the same body structure: diminutive, active, quick, with high energies. This personality is often quick-witted and has alert perceptions. She looks delightful in pickle green, in the yellow of mustard seeds, dried grasses and pods, and in crisp, bright oranges. Her costuming should have an orientation to the Swiss Alps, mountain folk, Tyrolean, or Robin Hood influences.

Some Stars to Be Aware Of


Aldebaran An orange star, first magnitude. The ancient name, from Arabic, means "the Follower," as the star seems to follow the Pleiades, or Seven Sisters star cluster, across the sky.

Red and orange are reflected in the eye of the waiting bull, always opposite Antares, the red giant of the scorpion. Antares means "Rival of Mars" because this ruddy red giant is near the average brightness of Mars.

The Bull's Eye alpha Tauri

Hamal  -An orange star, second order of magnitude. Around the time of Homer, the equinox was situated only nine degrees south of Hamal, allowing us to personalize the time that has passed since the Iliad and Odyssey were written.

The Ram's Horn - alpha Arietis


Sirius, is the brightest star in the night sky, blazing away at an apparent magnitude of -1.43. From Orion, look south and to the east to find brilliant Sirius, as if one really needs directions to find the brightest star in the sky. Its name comes from the Greek word for "searing" or "scorching."  Also known as the "dog star," its first appearance in the early morning signaled for the Romans the onset of the hottest time of the year. It forms a double star with Sirius B, the two revolving around each other.

Dog, wolf or bear, this animal knows the ways of the woods. Very close to Procyon, another neighbor. Sirius is one of the ancient star systems said to have had contact with humanity, figuring prominently in legends around the world.

Harry Potter: Sirius Black, Harry's godfather, member of the Order of the Phoenix 

Sirius defended Harry in the Department of Mysteries, and was forced beyond the black veil by his cousin Bellatrix Lestrange. He is presumed to have moved forward to higher dimensions. His name has since been cleared posthumously by the Ministry of Magic.

The Twins - The Cabiri [?] They are twins only in mythology, these warriors, Pollux fathered by Zeus and divine, Castor mortal, both placed in the sky to allow them to be together for all time.

Castor is a white star, between first and second order of magnitude, 48.6 light years away. Pollux is an orange star, first order of magnitude, 34.7 light years away.  These two nearby star systems may have had, or still may have an ancient conflict, as mythology reports.

The brightest stars were said to be first magnitude. Colour is dependent of surface temperature. Fifteen first magnitude stars are visible from the U.S.

 AL JABHAH  27LEO34   2000 A.D.

AL JABHAH [eta Leo] the "Forehead": Promotes love, benevolence, and help against enemies. The Latin word for this star is Juba.  Algieba
Adhafera (zeta), and Al Jabbah (eta) were called the Sickle.

Etymology: ADHAFERA.

Curl of the Lion's mane. It has been called the Funeral Pyre. The pyre could be a significant echo of the FERA element, as HeBHeR is FIRE in Hebrew (see FIRE.

Or, the fire can merely be connected to the Leo fire sign imagery, and the lion mane. The mane points to the hairy PeR(GH)A or FeRA root seen in PILE  Along with any flashy fire, this theme is likely a showy symbol of
the subject's gorgeous locks of hair, or even if bald, his/her curling, flowing
